Airforce One Tow Bar System

Have a 2017 Coachmen Concord & plan to tow a 2013 Honda CRV and just heard that the Airforce One is the best tow bar system. Any suggestions or experience? Thank you

Air Force One is one of the more popular toad braking systems for those with diesel coaches that have air brakes. To my knowledge, they do not make a tow bar system.

Your Concord is a gas Class C, correct?

A towing system consists of these parts (excluding the toad):

Braking system
Lighting system

Demco makes both the AirForce One (AF1) and the Stay-in-Play Duo. They are braking systems, not towbars. The AF1 is intended (as mentioned above) for air-brake equipped coaches, and the Duo for hydraulic-brake equipped coaches, such as yours. We have a Duo, and it's a nice unit.

There is a popular combined towbar/brake system called the NSA ReadyBrute Elite. Here is a link to the product Web page.

There are many thread on towing equipment in this forum. Read through several, and you will find a number of satisfied "customers" for most all the products. Most folks recommend what they own.

The CR-V is a popular toad. There are plug-and-play lighting system solutions for it (example here).

According to Honda, CR-Vs 2015 or newer are not towable.

Finally, you should add a "signature" to your profile. It contains whatever info you want; most people put info about their coach there, so they don't have to type it into each message. Instructions for adding a signature are here.

Demco makes all the parts you need:
- Tow bars
- Base Plates
- Wiring systems
- Air Force One braking systems

One stop shop if you want to go that way.
